Synopsis: Introduces readers to a butterfly farm in Costa Rica that ships pupae to museums around the world.
Comments: I had absolutely no idea that butterfly farms existed, and found this book fascinating. The text is written conversationally, so would read aloud well. But it’s also great for kids who want to read some cool nonfiction. The photographs elevate it above the more traditional juvenile nonfiction book.
